America today through the White House Press release The People’s Republic of China has been officially accused of hacking Microsoft Exchange earlier this year.Joining the European Union, the United Kingdom and NATO, this western conglomerate believes in China [via its Ministry of State Security (MSS)] Actively hire hackers to execute their orders while trying to confuse the real purpose behind their criminal activities. result? The vulnerability in Microsoft Exchange was exploited, causing thousands of computers around the world to be attacked, and in a large-scale operation that lasted for several years, “resulting in significant remediation costs mainly for victims of the private sector.”
U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken stated, “These contract hacks have caused governments and companies to lose billions of dollars in stolen intellectual property, payment of ransoms, and cybersecurity mitigation measures. [Chinese Ministry of State Security (MSS)] Let them be on the payroll. “He also said, “Responsible countries will not indiscriminately endanger global cybersecurity, nor will they deliberately harbor cybercriminals – let alone sponsor or cooperate with them. “
These allegations accuse China of hiring a veritable army of hackers whose sole purpose is to steal state secrets and intellectual property rights, while causing serious damage to services and infrastructure at the military, economic, and healthcare levels. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the National Security Agency (NSA), and the Cyber Security and Infrastructure Agency (CISA) have all contributed to cybersecurity consulting (Released today) Elaborated on the alleged connection between hacking and China.The Department of Justice (DOJ) also Public prosecution Four Chinese citizens cooperated with Chinese MSS and were accused of participating in global computer intrusion activities.

However, compared with the United States, the EU is less direct in terms of wording and assessment of current issues. As they stated in the Foreign and Security Policy Statement, “The EU and its member states strongly condemn these malicious cyber activities, which violate the responsible national code of conduct (…). We continue to urge China The authorities abide by these regulations, do not allow their territories to be used for malicious network activities, and take all appropriate measures and reasonably feasible steps to detect, investigate and resolve this situation.”
Therefore, although the United States directly accuses China of planning hacking attacks, the EU seems to have taken a more cautious approach, stating that China should take more measures to prevent any such actions within its borders — and act decisively to obstruct when they do. Time.
